Hi, welcome to the forum. I'm a bit of a BMW man myself, although I can only aspire to own a 3.0si! I've got a 324d, 524td, 316i and a 523i.

Your BMW is a very nice car and looks like it's in very good condition.

Thank you Diplomat!

They are great cars,old BMW:s,i guess the 524td is an e28 model right?

I had a M535i in the early 90s,awsome car at the time. I also had a 528i e12  as my first car,still miss it after 23 years!

Lucky you! I would've loved a M535i! A 528i isn't bad for a first car. I inherited a 324d that I still have, as well as my 524td. I am also looking for a 324td saloon some day, although I've really got to stop buying BMWs! I've also got a 316i and a 523i, as well as the 123d that I'll be getting next week.

Thank you!

Yes,its an original car,nothing much added or taken away.

It has a nice factory spec:Tinted windows,Electric mirror,Electric windows on all 4 doors,Air Condition,Limited slip diff,

Metallic paint:Arktis Blau Met,Velour upholstery in beige,Aluminium wheels:Turbin, and of course the sweet revving powerful 200bhp 3litre six with Bosch L-Jetronic injection

As you correctly pointed out,the BBS wheels are not original,they come from a M535i,they add some serious grip

through fast bends!

The 123d isn't quite new. It's about a year or two old. I had a 316d that from new recently too, but I found it a bit sluggish for motorway driving. I'm considering getting myself a 335i when the new 3-Series comes out too, although I bet that it's going to be expensive! I am also looking at a 520i that I saw in Autotrader recently. It was a very early previous generation saloon with the straight six and a manual for five grand. It's a shame that BMW are no longer going to make a N/A inline six. Modern cars are much more aimed at emissions regulations rather than the keen driver.

I like the sound of a 607 V6. Is that the 2.9? They put that engine in a Clio believe it or not. I think that the 607 is a very classy car, and the 207 is a nice little car from what I've heard too. My other cars (apart from the Beemers!) include a 2009 MX-5 2.0 that I bought for open top weekends in the Summer, or what there is of it! I've also got a Nissan Serena for lugging things or people about, and I bought a SORN Kia Sorento at an auction last week as a project, as I intend to do some offroading soon. I also bought another car last week, a Fiat Panda for mainly my wife's use, as a shopping car. I think it's a 1.1, the same engine that was used in the Renault 4! It's a great little runabout though, and I took it for a spin on the weekend, and it handles very nicely indeed for such a tall and cheap car!
